“The tweets, well, everybody is like, ‘LeBron’s being passive-aggressive.’ LeBron James isn’t passive-aggressive, he’s aggressive-aggressive,” Griffin said. “You know exactly where he stands as a teammate and a leader. Nobody on our team thought those tweets were directed at him. Nobody on our team took that in a negative way. But because the world at large isn’t in our locker room, they think, well, that would really bother them. I don’t care what you think if you’re not in that room. “LeBron enjoys and thrives in controversy and he really is comfortable in that space. I think he’s always going to parry with the media. I think he’s going to enjoy that throughout his career. It had no bearing on our locker room.”

Despite his – and Cleveland’s – recent success against the Hawks, James knows better than to look in the rearview mirror. “What happened in the past doesn’t define what happens today,” said James, who is 8-0 in two playoff series against Atlanta. “We’ve got to focus on the now and this is a team that’s coming off a very good and challenging first-round series against the Celtics, and we understand that their coach is going to have those guys well prepared and well driven for the series. “It don’t matter if you can win 100 straight games against somebody. If you lose four in a row, then you’re out of the playoffs. It doesn’t matter. All the things that happened in the past does not matter to our focus this week.”

In an effort to improve transparency, the league began last season releasing reports critiquing the calls officials make and do not make on games within five points with two minutes left.
